Love the album. I have their first two, and a gajillion other albums if I want heavy stuff. This album, albeit unexpected, is a welcomed change.
Amazing from start to finish, my son will grow up saying my dad made me listen to baroness all the time.
This album is going to piss a lot of closed minded people off. I'm sure there a lot more people, who actually listen to more than one style of music, that will appreciate it.
All of their CDs are amazing and I hope the closed minded people expand their horizons on music.
there is no such thing as one music that makes you think over another. there is no 'thinking-metal'
I love my heavy shit too... but this album is amazing people. Give it a shot.
Unexpected, yes. Satisfying, almost; I would have liked a few more heavier tracks to balance the softer stuff, but it's still a decent (double) album.
They grew up. Everybody knows that metal is for pre-teens. Whats next, shooting for some radio play?
i listen to more rock than metal. the problem with this record isn't that its not heavy enough, its that its boring as f*ck and watered down. baroness hasn't been good in years, so no surprise.
These guys haven't been any good since the Third EP/Split with Unpersons. This is no different.
As soon as they started posting the new songs, it was clear this was gonna be different. I am completely onboard with the change,even though those first two albums and ep's were crushing and i'll always wonder if there was more they could have accomplished as a metal band. BUT the elements that made them an awesome metal band are still here and now there just an amazing rock band, the album is a slurry of honest and interesting riffs and passages and I am curious to see how they will progress.
i'll be a baroness hype forever so I think this album is great. There are infinite bands to listen to so I don't necessarily expect or need to be wowed and blown away by every single one of them, not to say I don't think this a great album(s) in it's own right, even if it's a departure from "classic" Baroness. It adds to their already varied discography and in my opinion, is exactly where you'd expect them to go musically. Good shit.
The songs are good but they are NOT great. They're hollow and meander for most the songs then BAM! Badass solo! Please listen to the whole album then put on The Blue Album and see/feel the difference in the power and emotions of the songs. They damn near make you want to get up and "ride" BUT the songs from Baby Poop colors just are stagnent and stale that repeat a lot of the same ideas and cord structures from there last albums but just in the most bla way possible and with no passion.
So lets get down to it, The new Baroness album is weak and boring. If we're going to talk about how "great" this band has become lets also talk about how "great" Nickelback is and also how "awesome" Bon Jovi is as well. These bands have a vast amount of fans and make plenty of cash for the whole band and I say kudos to them. Hell I love Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet album!
stop listening at blue and seriously it sound like metallica load reload explode era.... sad but true its sucks
I love the assumption that if you hate this record you're close-minded. No I hate this record, because it's watered down, garbage from a band that was once great. I listen to more non-metal bands than I do metal. I was hoping for an amazing album, possibly even some thin lizzy influences, but what I got was a disappointment. It's as bad as all of the music that is played on popular radio stations under the moniker alternative rock.
I can't say this album is disappointing. That would imply I actually expected it to be good.
This is what happens when you have Shitallica's management getting a band all starry eyed, these dudes will be embarassed after the "dust" settles and their hype runs dry ...
Review should've simply stated "Mastodon ripoff band continues to follow in the footsteps of Mastodon."
This album is a masterpiece of composition, melody and hooks. Only a truly cohesive band that has put in their time together could put aside their egos and write for the song. To bad most of you are too cool to hear it. Hats off to Baroness!!
baroness....i loved you. now..i think its best if we just be friends.
What a let down this album was. I even preordered the vinyl. Now I'm stuck with a beautifully packaged album I'll lever listen to again. Hopefully they get heavy again, I can't stand this skinny jeans, Baroness trying to be the Beatles crap.
@ the masterpiece and being to cool to hear it.. I've tried multiple times to listen to the entire album (Love bandcamp!) but I cannot get through it. It's different but it is simply not good.
